Résumé

In 2007, the proportion of diesel cars reached 74% in the French market. This growth is similar in other Western Europe countries like Germany for instance. In the last ten years, the drawbacks of diesel engine noise were signicantly reduced. A part of current research works deals with the improvement of perceived characteristics towards a higher customer appreciation. As part of a study on the sound perception of diesel engines, we are focusing on positive features of di erent driving situations (from hot idle to acceleration or trac jam for instance). Like above-mentioned, France and Germany seem to be the biggest purchasers of diesel cars. Therefore, this paper presents an intercultural study between French and German diesel cars owners. The experiment proposed to the participants, consists in assessing the dieselness of twelve di erent driving situations (for three di erent diesel cars) on a continuous scale. For each of those countries, the results show the hot idle like the driving situation that best represents îthe characteristic soundî of diesel engines. In addition, for most of driving situations, German people evaluate them more diesel than French people assess. These results will be detailed in this article
